Professional and Executive Coaching

What Is Professional Coaching?

Coaching is a safe place where women can fully be themselves and discover new ways to achieve their desired outcomes through conversation in a supportive, judgement-free space.


Coaching is about Improving your Performance

You’re intelligent, talented, innovative, high-achieving and consistent, but you’re still falling short of your goals.


Coaching Focuses on the Future and the Present

Coaching is action-oriented, focuses on what you want and allows you to dream out loud with a dedicated listener. Coaching is grounded in the assumption that you are resourceful, whole and know yourself best.


Coaching is about crushing self-limiting, painful thoughts and revealing new possibilities

Working with a professional coach will help you raise your awareness, resolve distractions and find your best path forward. Coaching employs a growth mindset and focuses on leveraging your existing strengths to help you see yourself and others clearly, build more productive relationships, clarify your goals and achieve your dreams.


Coaching is about Stretching

Coaching will allow you to unlock your potential and maximize your performance. In collaboration with your coach, you will learn to trust your internal source of wisdom and move from awareness to action.


What are the Limits of Professional Coaching?

While coaching does rely on a supportive, conversational relationship with your coach to help you achieve your goals, it is important to note that professional coaching is not, nor does it replace, psychotherapy. CGI is not a therapeutic practice and does not treat psychological problems, such as depression or anxiety. Additionally, coaches are not consultants – we do not tell our clients what to do, nor are we mentors. Coaches do not teach you how to do things – we ask powerful questions, foster a strengths-based, judgement-free environment, and provide our clients the tools and inspiration they need to reach new heights and achieve their dreams.

When I first began coaching… I didn’t expect to double the amount of outbound meetings I book each month. And I hadn’t considered that I could find joy in connecting with prospects on LinkedIn, As I transitioned into my new role as a SDR, she helped to shift my thinking. I’ve been in role for a few months and have consistently reached my quota. Cherilynn helped me achieve this.
